Another new fairy tale adaptation is heading for the big screen, and this time Sofia Coppola will be behind the camera. She’s taken over a live action version of “The Little Mermaid” from Joe Wright, and this one is said to be much closer to its Hans Christian Andersen roots than the now iconic Disneyfied Ariel version. So who will play Coppola’s Little Mermaid, who gives up her voice and undergoes excruciating pain in order to exchange her flippers for legs in order to live amongst the humans who fascinateRead More
It’s still pretty murky territory trying to figure out when we may finally see Susanne Bier’s “Serena,” which paired Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper immediately after the duo did David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” together. “American Hustle” has already come and gone, but still, no “Serena.” What’s the hold up? Who knows, but at least today we’ve got some new stills from the film, which production designer Richard Bridgland uploaded to his website. Lawrence and Cooper play Serena and George Pemberton, respectively, a newlywed couple whose marriage is quicklyRead More
Dayo Okeniyi
Dayo Okeniyi, 25, has joined the first installment of Alan Taylor‘s new “Terminator: Genesis” trilogy, according to Variety. He joins a cast that includes Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke. Plot details for the film are still being kept secret, but the cast is already coming together. Having won the role over “Attack the Block” star John Boyega, Okeniyi will play Danny Dyson, the son of scientist Miles Dyson, who helped to create the computer system that sparked the war between machines and humans. Clarke will play Sarah Connor,Read More
Chloe Moretz
Chloe Moretz is undeniably one of the top teenage actresses currently working in Hollywood, and with six film due for release this year, the 17-year-old is quite the overachiever. Among those films is R.J. Cutler’s adaptation of Gayle Forman’s young adult novel “If I Stay” – and courtesy of EW.com, we’ve got your first look at Moretz and co-star Jamie Blackley. Moretz plays Mia, a 17-year-old who is faced with the dilemma of choosing her true passion of music, but with the risk losing her boyfriend (Blackley) and leaving herRead More
We’ve got Adam Driver as the villain, but who will be the Jedi to take him on in “Star Wars: Episode VII”? Variety reports it just may be one of these five relatively unknown young actors: Ed Speleers, John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher. The trade doesn’t specify the character the five men are up for, but does call it “the lead role.” Plemons is the name we’ve heard before in connection with this specific part, and it appears he hasn’t quite locked it down yet,Read More
Next week, one of our favorite new shows of the year so far premieres. “The 100,” based on the young adult novel by Kass Morgan, will take The CW to dark and twisted places as a bunch of juvenile delinquents are set free on a post-apocalyptic Earth. The line is quickly drawn between those who wish to remain lawful and those who immediately choose lawlessness, and a core group, led by Eliza Taylor‘s Clarke, navigates the dangers surrounding them, from a potentially toxic planet to each other. Newcomer Christopher LarkinRead More
They showed us a close-up of the helmet, and now The CW have revealed the full costume for their newest superhero, “The Flash,” as played by “Glee” alum Grant Gustin. This is still just a pilot so there’s a chance it won’t even become a real TV show, but I’d say they’re pretty confident it will, given how marketing has been non-stop. Gustin has already made a couple of appearances on “The Flash”‘s sister show “Arrow” as his human alter-ego Barry Allen, but he won’t transform into the iconic DCRead More
The CW has really been stepping it up lately in terms of offering up shows that go beyond the “teen soap” genre (though there’s plenty of that to go around as well, not that there’s anything wrong with that). One example is the next new drama getting set to premiere next month. It’s called “The 100” (The Hundred, not The One Hundred) and having seen the first four episodes, we can tell you that it is exciting, dark, twisted and totally addictive. It’s based on the book of the sameRead More
After a long process, it looks like Fox and director Josh Trank have found their new “Fantastic Four.” The Wrap reported (and has since been echoed by both Variety and THR) that the new superhero team will be: Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Jordan has been attached to the upcoming franchise relaunch the longest, his name first surfacing last May in conjunction with the role of JohnnyRead More
